My business partner recently brought to my attention a video of Jane Goodall speaking about the power of female characteristics (posted below). I think Jane’s message is pivotal for women:
What I have been saddened by very often is that some of the women who’ve been leaders in the women’s movement…they tried to get out there into these traditionally male jobs by being more male than the males. And that’s unfortunate, really unfortunate.
I can see why it happened, but I think the qualities women can bring into our society, you know…we are by nature, probably instinctively, more nurturing, compassionate, we’re good at finding solutions that don’t involve physical power … So if we can take those out into society it should be making a better world.
